The Third Grade studies Native Americans as one of their Social Studies themes. To enhance this topic of learning, the Third Grade went to the Flynn Theatre to see Ty Defoe. Ty is a Native American artist from the Oneida and Ojibwe tribes. Ty and dancers of other tribal ancestries shared Native American folklore and teachings through traditional storytelling, dance, and music played on several indigenous instruments. At the end of the performance a few students from each class attending the show were invited up to the stage. The students danced together with hoops to demonstrate unity and togetherness as a community. Evie and Carly volunteered to go on stage from our class and did a fantastic job following along and dancing with Ty and his friends.
